The coastal flood warning is a dangerous or hazardous statement issued about the rise in water levels and high winds along the coast which indicates that a coastal flood event is about to happen or occur. There are various ways in which this may happen. For instance, coastal flooding may cause residences or homes to rise up, block roads, and destroy other things. This may also cause destruction that leads to more significant losses for people as well as damage to property. The UK is facing the threat of coastal flooding this week because of strong winds and stormy or heavy rains. The Met Office UK weather forecast shows that there might be heavy thunderstorms in the coming days till Thursday and Friday in this country in two main parts which are England and Whale, because of this the coastal flooding threat is expected high. The Environmental Agency considered the expected weather forecast and based on it they issued sixteen (16) flood alerts and also one warning to the people living near coastal or river areas. Coastal flooding is becoming worse day by day because of changes in climate and it poses a serious threat to the ecosystem and many people. According to the recorded statistics by EM-DAT in 2022, 387 natural disasters and hazardous events were recorded globally which resulted in 30704 losses of lives as well as the 185 million affected individuals. According to another analysis based on the CoastalDEM assessment about 420 million people globally might be vulnerable to annual coastal floods. Therefore, it is crucial to take different kinds of preventive measures according to the changed weather conditions.
When overflow flooding due to minor tides is expected to happen but doesn’t pose a severe threat of damage to the property or people, but it might be problematic for the people of the affected community, it is referred to as a coastal flood advisory and this weather statement is issued by National Weather Service of US. The minor tidal flooding is not too threatening but it results in the blocking of roads. The coastal flood advisory program forecasts and monitors potential storm surge, and coastal flooding events and make preparations for preparedness plans for future disasters. The government, municipal, and private entities used this information to prepare for floods, storms, droughts, hurricanes, or other types of hazards. NOAA is committed to ensuring the safety of the general public during times of extreme weather through this service.
A severe thunderstorm is defined as "Potentially very strong thunderstorms producing hazardous tornadoes or flash floods resulting in major property damage." A severe thunderstorm warning is a serious kind of warning to the public about the severe weather conditions of detected thunderstorms issued by weather forecast agencies. In addition, thunderstorms may produce huge hail, damaging winds, and large hailstones which may cause death to people who encounter them as well as serious injury. On Tuesday, 2023UK Met Office forecasted a warning of heavy thunderstorms, snow, and large hailstorms for Whale and England (northeast). People must stay indoors during strong thunderstorms in order to reduce the risk of being affected by tornadoes, keep away from downed objects, and never touch electrical equipment. Also, avoid using vehicles and try to remain calm and maintain peace during such critical times because sudden panic will only enhance the likelihood of getting struck by lightning. People must also consider installing additional precautionary or safety features also they must have a backup generator in case of power outages.
A Flood Watch is a hazardous weather statement that is issued when the weather conditions are more favorable for a dangerous event to happen such as coastal flooding. This doesn’t mean that the flooding hazard will certainly occur, but it indicates its possibility. A flood watch statement indicates that it provides awareness among people for preparation and planning for coastal flooding. The UK is facing severe rainfall threats and the Met Office warned and forecasted that the weather conditions turning heavily windy & wet. The local flooding threats are expected by surface water or rivers from North England and some parts of the Midlands. Three flood warnings and 24 flood alerts were issued while in the last 24 hours, 11 flood warnings were removed. The coast is often most vulnerable to severe weather conditions or events. A major event might be hazardous and devastating for wildlife as well as humans. Destruction or harm from the coastal floods may last for weeks and even years depending on the severity or intensity of the incident. A coastal flood watch is kinds of recommendation for people to prepare themselves and provide more awareness to protect from severe damage.
In the UK, according to the Environment Agency today Flood is expected because the water level in rivers is still high including River Derwent, lake, and River Greta. Further rainfall is forecasted with 150 to 200mm throughout the day in north England and Whale and the flooding may affect low-lying areas, therefore, the people or residents to stay away from low-lying areas and bridges, etc. 1 flood warnings and 11 alerts issued to Keswick Campsite and (Wear, Tyne, Somerset coast) respectively.
A severe thunderstorm watch indicates that there is a high risk of severe thunderstorms in many areas. This may produce heavy rainfall and strong thunderstorms result in flash flooding and it happens when the temperature reaches over 50 degrees Fahrenheit, with high-pressure systems. Such storms may lead to disruption of transportation, and significant harm to buildings infrastructure, and property. Severe thunderstorms typically occur every 2 to 4 years according to NOAA. The National Weather Service alerts people to stay away from windows and other openings as well as stay indoors.
A tropical storm warning is a type of weather alert that is issued by the National Hurricane Center (NHC). It is a voluntary advisory that identifies dangerous or harmful weather conditions that may result in large-scale damage and loss of life. In most cases, they will issue an advisory only when there is an imminent threat of catastrophic losses. The tropical storm warning purpose is to provide people with enough time to prepare or plan for significant losses and possible damages. The ultimate goal and mission of the coastal storm response operations is to provide services and assistance to people when disaster strikes.
